    Hello to you both,
    Thankyou for the Welcome,
    I have always been a Traveler throughout my life, and find it very hard to
    change now!.
    At my age I`d like Warmer Weather for my Bones, so, North it is!.

    I was/am, looking at a Unit including a Sidecar with a Flat Bed for sleepng on
    and keeping me off the wet ground each night!.
    I cannot make up my mind as yet as too the use of an Electric Motor to
    assist me with a Wind Generator to charge the Battery or a Petrol Engine
    for the same job,
    Our Coast runs South/North, and is accompanied by a 15/25 Knot Wind each
    Day, all day. so, An Alum` Mast could be in the Construction Thoughts for
    a return of about 5 Knots traveling Speed, The Small Sail can be a Weather cover, for me when sleeping as well!.
    The Mast could be fitted very simply on the inner front of the Sidecar to
    help counter my wieght when underway!
    When you both finnished having a Chuckle about this I would really like to
    get your feelings and Ideas of improvements on such!

    Best Regards,
    John.
